Full text of "Handlist of Syriac Manuscripts at Princeton Theological Seminary"

Syriac/Nestorian Manuscripts 

Princeton Seminary's collection of 42 Syriac (Nestorian) manuscripts was donated by the Rev. E. 
W. McDowell, a Presbyterian missionary in the Near East. He presented this collection to the 
Rev. Robert E. Speer, the General Secretary of the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions in 
1931. Dr. Speer, a Trustee of Princeton Theological Seminary entrusted this collection to the 
Seminary Library at that time. 

Originally these manuscripts had come from the area around Kurdistan. Mr. McDowell gave 
some of the Syriac collection to Mar Shimon, a Patriarch of the Nestorian Church in the United 
States, who lived in San Francisco. 

The manuscript number at the left is the catalogue identification in Speer Library. The manuscript 
number in brackets is the OCP (Orientalia Christiana Periodica) given in A Checklist of Syriac 
Manuscripts in the United States and Canada.
